A Story About Culling

I was at a function, talking to a young woman about this and that, when the topic turned to the wild horses of the Snowy Mountains.  She said she was in favour of culling because they “destroy the environment”. I felt my blood boiling.  This woman was obviously not a horse lover — and just…
